Gektor is rather sturdy and square-built in body, yet leggy with excellent movement, and well suited to work under saddle as well as in harness. He has a long neck, good spine, and is well-conformed behind, with clean, flexible hind legs. His head is light and correct, with the expressive eyes typical of both parents. Gektor’s character is both excellent and kind.
This bay colt is another example of the skilled selection and breeding that is being used to revive the old, wonderful and nearly-lost lines in the Orlov Trotter breed. Gektor is inbred to the magnificent stallion Uklon from both sides: through his sire and grandsire (Kriket and Kuplet) and through his dam (Gubernantka), Moscow Stud Farm’s Govorushka-Gichka broodmare, sired by Round who goes back to Uklon.
